Order of variables on O365 workflow start form

Jump to solution

I apologize if this question has been posed before. I was unable to find any related posts through a search.

 

Is it possible to change the order of the initiation variables on a start form generated by a Nintex O365 workflow? Newly added variables always go to the bottom of the form and  that's not always the best flow for the users.

Hi,

 

The order of the varaibles is by order of creation. So the last variable created will always be in last position. There is no easy way to re-order your variable.

 

But, if your realy need to re-order you sevral method: 

Manually: Principle: recreate the variables in the right order.

Rename your old variables.

Create new ones (using the old name and in the right order)

Replace your variables in your actions, delete the old ones.

 

With the import file (nwp) :

Export your workflow (get a nwp file)

Extract the nwp file (it's a .zip package)

Open the the file "Variables.xml" (in the workflow folder, in the folder/files that has just been extracted )

ReOrder your variables in the XML file.

ReZip your package (to root of your package must be the folder "Workflow" and "Manifest.xml") like :

Change the name of your .zip file to .nwp

Import your nwp in your workflow, now will have your variables reordered

nico,

 

I appreciate the quick response and that you provided options. I have a lot of initiation variables so I went with modifying the Variables.xml file. It worked beautifully.

 

Merci beaucoup!
